Program Handbook

The master of science program in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering offers courses of the highest technical quality. These courses include AI, machine learning, algorithms and theory, assistive technology, computer architecture and nanotechnology; computer vision, medical imaging and biometrics; digital humanities, human computer interaction, natural language processing, network and data science; scientific, cloud and high performance computing; security, privacy and cryptography; software engineering, visualization and visual analytics; wireless, mobile and embedded systems. The M.S. degree is focused on adding depth and breadth of knowledge enabling a career in the tech-startup sector, industry, or government. Students in the M.S. program pay tuition, take courses full-time on campus, and complete a  project or thesis. For a well-prepared student, the MS degree can be completed in 11 months (two semesters plus the summer session) and is open to students with a B.S. degree. The professional and traditional M.S. degrees are equivalent. Students interested in pursuing a Ph.D. degree should apply directly into the Ph.D. program.
